Its total income during the quarter under review was at Rs 2,756.93 crore. The same was at Rs 2,119.60 crore in the same period a year ago.
According to the company, the impact on its result is primarily due to restrictions caused by the COVID-19 on the business activities, and hence the figures are not comparable.
"The impact on the results for the quarter and nine months ended December 31, 2020, is primarily due to restrictions caused by the COVID-19 on the business activities. Hence, the results for the quarter and nine months ended December 31, 2020, are not strictly comparable with the results of the earlier periods presented," ZEEL said.
The company's revenue from advertisement was at Rs 1,302.03 crore in the October-December quarter of 2020. It was at Rs 1,230.82 crore in the year-ago period.
